keep at it
its doable

the biggest issue i had was clearing the screen and not having the meter filled. having to shoot wildy off screen and only to either miss or have the wrong colour balls. It is doable without hacking

My highest score for level one is about 15 seconds. Getting 5 is going to be nearly impossible.

I guess that is the only way. Just stick with it. I have hit 6 seconds about a dozen times. Easily one of the most frustrating achievements ever!!!

Everyone keep trying. I just nailed this achievement last night. It is possible!! I even did it after completing the game, without the signing in procedure listed in the guide. I fired 3 balls. I know there has been some talk that you can only fire 2. One achievement left, 2,000,000 in one game is gonna be ridiculous!!!

Not impossible. I did it tonight in under an hour! You need a few things to get it.

1.) PATIENCE - you can't get it, otherwise.
2.) A controller in mint condition. If it's worn, it will be unreliable!
3.) MORE PATIENCE! If you get mad, you'll lose focus.
4.) Luck! If you get lots of single colored spheres alone, bail and restart!

It took me 30 or 40 tries (maybe 50?) before I got it. It might take you longer. Just keep at it. If you can't get it after an hour... take a break from it and try later when you feel ready to give it another go!

Good luck!!! :-)

8-10 seconds it is easy to get - you will get the scheme to do that in a few minutes. Once I even get 6 seconds.

I do not like achievemnts for which skills is not enough, and for this one you need a lot of luck.

Why developers created such thing? People can achieve this only by accident or by constantly repeating the first level (they do not play the game, they do not enjoy).
